What the fuck are terpenes and why should I care?
Seriously, what the fuck are terpenes? I’m seeing terpenes labelled on cannabis packaging, stated on company websites and talked about at all the dispensaries. If you get your cannsell, you need to know about terpenes. If you’ve read more than one of these articles, you’ve probably notice that every time I talk about a strain, I make sure to list its terpene content.
Do you know if your weed is premium?
Story time: I was a budtender for all of a week in November, then Ontario went back into lockdown again. In that week I got to have all kinds of conversations about weed with the community I was in. Not everyone was an experienced user or a newbie. The best way I can think to describe the people that came in was a full-spectrum of cannabis users (see what I did there?).

how to get more out of your weed with high-quality Canadian cannabis
I'm back with round 2 with Msiku: In November I wrote about three licensed producers from Nova Scotia. I picked three licensed producers that I thought deserved recognition. The three companies I wrote about were Msiku, Skosha and Truro. I received a lot of responses. Good reviews, bad reviews, questions about the company. Most of it was about Msiku. Everybody wanted to know about the Nova Scotia cannabis brand co-owned by the Mi’kmaw first nations.
There is high-quality cannabis coming out of cottage country!
Do you remember when I talked about Truro? The licensed producer from Nova Scotia making their products in “tuna cans”? You remember. I found another licensed producer doing the same thing with their packaging. Much like Truro, Muskoka Grown packages their cannabis in jars that look like this:
Can a beer brand be trusted in the weed market?
I took a seasonal contact at the LCBO in December. Just a cashier job to keep me busy for the month. My days mostly composed of the same conversations. Here’s an example of one, you can imagine the rest.
